AWS RDS Instance Recommendation 10 million views

Hello,

We are looking at setting up our stats server on AWS. We are aiming to handle 10 Million Pageviews. I wanted to get some input on which RDS instance everyone uses. For example, If I should go for a t3 or an m5? For EC2 I’m going for an m5.2xlarge.

We currently are running a Linode server (12 CPU/32gb ram) with matomo and mysql all in one.

Any input appreciated.

Thanks

Hi James,

10M pageview per what timeframe? If you do that per year, you should be fine with a single node… haven’t done my math to be honest. If you do 10M per day, then you need a different setup than you now use.

I have just finished a major redo of our high traffic matomo instance. Now running at 8-10M per day easy and peaked at 36M a couple of weeks ago. I do have some tips, but then you need to tell me a little more.

We have ended up running with REDIS and a MasterSlave configuration. And optimised the configuration by splitting up the data capture from the data processing node.

Need more information, just let me know, I might just be able to share some stuff that helped me.
Regards,
Robert

Thanks for the reply. Sorry about that. 10 million page views per month.

A 10M per month should be on a xlarge db and ws instance. As long as you do not have large traffic spikes you should be fine.
